Working hard and not getting ahead is getting old. And listening to well-meaning (self-serving) Nick Hanauer talk about a 45% top tax-bracket is nauseating. The top federal rate in the year of my birth--1964--was 77%. You're about 1/2 way there, Nick. 90% on every dollar 'earned' over 500,000 / year--which includes all sources of income--sounds about right, if you want any substantive progress reducing income inequality.
